season's tweetings

Happy Weekend, everyone! Hope it's been a good one.

Today I have a tweet little card that was inspired by the current Sketch Saturday sketch and the Jingle Belles Blue Christmas Challenge. I'd been meaning to play along at Jingle Belles and, when I saw the sketch, I immediately envisioned a trio of bluebirds atop those banners.

Doodlebug Design polar pals dp; Distress Ink core paper; Simon Says Stamp lilac cardstock
Lawn Fawn winter sparrows images, stamped in CTMH black and colored with Prismacolor pencils
Lawn Fawn winter sparrows sentiment, stamped in CTMH twilight
birdies embellished with Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents
Lawn Fawn mini snowflakes dies; Stampin' Up! embossing folder
adhesives: Scotch ATG; foam backing; Zig 2 way glue pen

Think I'll also share these little tweeties over at the Cards in Envy Favorite Color Combo {Anything Goes} Challenge... because I do love blue and purple on a Christmas card, and the A Bit of Sparkle Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp.

One last thing about these tweeties, they will be going to the pediatric cardiac unit at our local children's hospital as part of an upcoming Cards for Little Hearts card drive. Stay tuned for more info on how you can donate a card or two to this worthy cause.

Parting Thoughts

A quick reminder that our Springtime = Party Time Challenge is up and running at Words 2 Craft By. We'd love for you to play along for a chance to win $10 to an online retailer of your choice.

That's it for now. Until next time, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
